Former first lady Pat Nixon watched Trump on the “Phil Donahue Show” in December 1987. The Manhattan builder so impressed her that she told her husband, the former president who resigned the Oval Office in disgrace in 1974.
I did not see the program, but Mrs. Nixon told me you were greaton the Donahue show.
As you can imagine, she is an expert on politics and she predicts that whenever you decide to run for office, you will be a winner!
That 29-year-old letter was sitting in the Nixon Presidential Library until it was unearthed last year in a biography of Trump entitled “Never Enough.”And ever since, it seems, the front-runner has been trying to prove Nixon right. As Maggie Haberman and Alexander Burns of the New York Times reported over the weekend, Trump’s desperate bid for national political stature and relevance began in earnest during his flirtations five years ago.
